At VillagesOKC, we empower adults to age with vitality and purpose. Our core values are to learn, plan and serve. While all of these are important to successful aging, we think a key component is planning. If you plan for potential transitions - a hospital stay, a move, or aging in place, you can be well prepared and you will have less anxiety about those transitions. Don’t assume your family knows what you want - write it down!

A great way to begin this preparation is to spend time organizing and documenting your important information and wishes. VillagesOKC has developed The GIFT - an interactive workshop guiding participants through 12 key areas most affected by life transitions. We try to keep groups small - usually 12 people or less. Local guest professionals add to the experience by providing valuable resources and experience about their topic.  Each participant receives a binder and USB drive.

The GIFT is free to VillagesOKC members, and we encourage members to take The GIFT each year. Information changes frequently, and it's important to keep your book up to date. For participants who are not members, the fee is usually $199, EXCEPT in this workshop. Legend Retirement Community has generally offered to host and cover the participation fee for up to 12 participants.

The GIFT is divided into four sections. If you wish to participate in a single session the fee is $89 each.Here is an example of what is covered in each session:
Session 1: Personal, Legal and Medical   (90 minutes)

Session 2: Financial, Insurance, Real Estate (90 minutes)

Session 3: Living Options: Staying at home, retirement communities and nursing care, Daily Living, Crisis Plan  (90 minutes)

Session 4: Home Health, Hospice and Memorials, Celebrations & End of Life  (90 minutes)

This event is at Jefferson Gardens on Wednesdays in July (10, 17, 24, 31) from 10:00am - 11:30am. The address is 15401 N Penn Avenue. Your materials will be provided for you at the workshop. If you have any questions please call our office at (405) 990-6637.
